Single people are men or women of all ages who have come to believe that being single is the way for them to live faithfully their baptismal call to holiness, and to attain 'fullness of life'.
They may live alone, with family, or in a Christian community with others who are also single. They may use their chosen career to express their love through their ministries in fields such as social work, education and healthcare.
Singles often devote their time and energy to the service of others, especially those most in need, and they are often key volunteers in community projects.
They may serve their parish community in any number of ways. Many single people have chosen to serve for a time as overseas missionaries or volunteers with aid projects.
Those whose call is the single vocation are called by God to live a life of faith, prayer and generosity.
